Will Amnesia Beach Be Your Next Obsession?

We receive hundreds of new music submissions every week at UTG, and of those only a select few ever make it to the front page. Even less appear more than once, which is probably as much our fault as theirs (communication is a two-way street), but every so often a musician or group comes along that we know right away will soon be a front page regular. This week that musician is Amnesia Beach, and I think you too will soon fall victim to their unique take on the singer-songwriter genre.

Hailing from California, Amnesia Beach boasts a complex …

Passion Pit

Passion Pit Share “Until We Can’t (Let’s Go)”

Passion Pit have joined forces with NPR.org to debut a new track off their forthcoming album, Kindred.

A bombastic, synth-heavy dance party, “Until We Can’t (Let’s Go)” is the third glimpse we’ve received of the Cambridge trio’s newest record, which will hit shelves nationwide on April 21 through Columbia Records.

If you’d like to catch the group’s latest single live, they’ll be on the road for almost the entire month of May. A full list of dates can be viewed at the bottom of this post.

The Story So Far 2012

The Story So Far Stream New Single, “Solo”

Over the weekend, The Story So Far stopped by BBC Radio 1 to debut another new track off their upcoming self-titled album, due out May 19 via Pure Noise Records.

Titled “Solo,” the outfit’s latest offering harkens back to their earlier undertakings without sacrificing the abrasive riffage found on 2013’s What You Don’t See. While it doesn’t go down quite as easy as the previously released “Nerve,” it’s still a jam-and-a-half, boasting some of Parker Cannon’s most acidic lyrics to date. Stream it below, and let us know if you’re a fan in the replies.

Atreyu Share “So Others May Live,” Reclaim Their Heavy Crown

The return of Atreyu in 2014 came with a fresh wave of rumors regarding the group’s plans for the future. Some expected a 10-year tour for The Curse, while others thought the band would immediately hit the studio. The group ultimately chose to do neither, instead playing a string of shows across the US, but in 2015 they are planning to share a new record and earlier this week we heard what we believe is the album’s first single.

“So Others May Live” is a song written for and about the men and women currently fighting in the armed …

Mariage Blanc Stream Another Excellent Single From ‘No Autobiography’

Last month, we were lucky enough to premiere a brand new track from Mariage Blanc, one of our ‘9 Artists To Watch in 2015.’ Today, the indie rock four-piece is streaming another new song over at GroundSounds.

“Silent Nations” is the third track to surface from the band’s upcoming album, No Autobiography, and it’s tied for our favorite with every other song on the album. Yeah, it’s that good. We’ve made the comparisons before but if this is your first Mariage Blanc experience, you might find similarities to Real Estate, Elliott Smith, Melpo Mene or …

UTG PREMIERE: Charlie Sztyk – “Wed”

​​​​Charlie Sztyk is an artist who deserves to be on every folk, indie, and pop lover’s radar – on the minds and in the ears of any music lover in general really. We’re honored to have the opportunity to introduce you to Sztyk’s work with “Wed,” a new single from his forthcoming album, The Arc, which will be released later this year in two parts.

“Wed” is unlike anything I’ve ever heard before. It’s dark and poignant in tone and lyricism, inspired by trying times and situations in Sztyk’s life, involving family and internal battles. It contains elements of …

The Japanese House Astounds With “Pools To Bathe In”

A few weeks ago, we heard The Japanese House for the first time when “Still” surfaced, seemingly out of nowhere. We were pretty blown away – but now, the elusive and enigmatic London native has returned with “Pools To Bathe In,” the title track from her debut EP, set to release on April 27 via Dirty Hit.

This new track has managed to take our collective breath away. Fans of Copeland, the equally-talented youngster Låpsley, and maybe even Imogen Heap will likely agree that the 19-year-old Amanda Bain is on an inevitable rise to greatness in the indie …

Earl Sweatshirt Announces New Album, Shares First Single

Late last night, iTunes added a pre-order page for a new Earl Sweatshirt album titled I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside. The record is scheduled for release next Tuesday, March 23, which is the same date Kendrick Lamar originally teased for his new joint (before releasing it earlier this week without warning). Fans were quick to celebrate the news, but a lengthy rant from Earl on Twitter earlier today made it seem …

Hear Sufjan Stevens’ Gorgeous New Song “Should Have Known Better”

On March 31, Sufjan Stevens will release his brand new folk album, Carrie & Lowellvia Asthmatic Kitty. Pre-orders are ongoing in a variety of formats here. In anticipation of the release, he’s sharing another new single: “Should Have Known Better.”

As the second track on his album, “Should Have Known Better” acts as an introductory phrase to what kind of folk we can expect in his triumphant return. Bedroom keys eventually hop in as well as layered melodies and various harmonies with backing vocals. Stevens expertly layers it all to turn struggles into a beautiful reflection. While …
